Planar cell polarity (PCP) or tissue polarity describes a coordinated polarity at the plane of the tissue where most or all cells within a tissue are polarized in one direction. It is perpendicular to the apical-basal polarity of the cell. PCP is manifested readily in the Drosophila wing and cuticle bristles, Drosophila eye ommatidia, and mammalian hair and inner ear hair bundles, and less evidently, in cellular processes such as in the coordinated, directional cell movements, and oriented cell… CONTINUE READING
